Elohim ~ Alpha Blondy (Ivory Coast)
(amazon.com) - USA    (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
Alpha Blondy’s eighth recording on Shanachie, features his sinuous, reedy vocals on a compelling set of originals that deal with the struggles and sobering realities of life and themes of love. Such songs as "Journalists En Danger (Democratie)," "Take No Prisoner" (which deals with the slaughter in Sudan, "Dictature (Dictator)" and "Les Voleurs De La Republique (Thieves Of The Republic)" pull no punches.

Paris Percy
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy - Audio CD
The best live reggae recording since Bob Marley and the Wailers Live. This two CD live recording captures Alpha Blondy and his band at their best. Alpha Blondy surrounds himself with a great reggae rhythm group but also horns and voices. ( A listener from Highland Park, IL United States)

Apartheid Is Nazism
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy
This is a life-changing album. Quite literally one of the best albums I have ever heard in any genre. I am about to buy my 3rd copy -- I have given the other two away. This time I'm keeping it! ( a listener from from Tamuning, GU USA )

Yitzhak Rabin
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy
"Yitzhak Rabin" is infused with the same spirit as Blondy's other albums. It's great music with a message, delivered as only the power of righteous reggae can. This is Rasta spirit exemplified, but you don't have to be a Rasta to appreciate Blondy's beats and humanistic views. ( A music fan from New York, NY United States )

Masada
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy
Blondie's 8th album sparkles with fluid melodies, luscious riffs and his wistful, plaintive voice singing in Dioula, French nd English. Particularly gripping tracks include Rendez-vous, desert Storm, Peace In Liberia and the incredibly beautiful Sciences sans Conscience and Ca Me Fait Si Mal with their singalong melodies and hypnotic rhythms. ( a listener from Johannesburg - South Africa )

Live Au Zenith [Paris] [LIVE]
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy
This is one of my favorite reggae albums, one of my favorite live albums, and just one of my favorite albums. The album opens with an intro, a man pumping up the Parisian audience for Blondy's appearance on stage; this is followed by a musical intro and then Blondy himself. The tracks blend together well, and the overall flow of the album really makes me feel as if I was there or had seen the show. ( Justin Martin from Weaverville, CA United States )

Dieu
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy And The Solar System
Great reggae mixed with tuneful pop mixed with African overtones. Blondy really combines the styles well and brings it altogether with his voice and talent. This was my first taste of Alha Blondy. It was sweet to hear it as well as to experience it while in his native land and to taste a bit of what he is cooking. ( A music fan from Milwaukee, Wisconsin )

The Best of Alpha Blondy [Shanachie]
(amazon.com) - USA  (amazon.co.uk) - Europe
by Alpha Blondy
This CD is melodious and smooth. It starts off with a pop kind of tune, but it gets more deep as the CD progresses. It is the kind of album that builds momentum as it goes along. It makes you yearn to know exactly what he's talking about, because he has such passion behind his lyrics. The last three songs are classics, and can be played over and over again without getting tired. This is a must have for any collection. ( A music fan from Los Angeles, CA United States )

The Best of Alpha Blondy [World Pacific]   (amazon.com) - USA
by Alpha Blondy
. If you want music that can lift you up and blow you away, stop listening to pop american music and buy Alpha Blondy!...by the way all professional critics, especially the one cricizing Alpha, are not to be trusted ( A music fan from California )
